Smoove & Turrell live experience would not be possable without the work of these highly talented bunch of musicians. But who are they and what makes them all tick ???
The Producer and general Grandad of the band being the oldest and the wisest. Smoove seems to knows a thing or two about pretty much everything! Like a Sheep herder of the band Smoove is always making sure all band members are well lubed and oiled in order to keep the S&T cogs constantly rotating.
Smoove has an impressive vinyl collection of 20,000 + which provides superb sound installation in the studio. when Smoove isn’t in the studio he can usually be found hanging around empty concrete buildings imitating various sound effects with his enormous mouth.
Smoove also does a mean Chewbacca impersonation.

Mike Porter (Poo / Spray Tan Porter / Ann Widdecombe)
Keyboard player and general mascot (Muppet) of the band who has the ability to let his hair down in more ways than one with his unique 60‘s basin haircut!

Mike also owns a museum called B.M.V.K -The Boon Museum of Vintage Keyboards which is apparently named after Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets). Unfortunately the Museum has never yet been opened to the public, although it is once rumoured that Guitarist Andy Taylor from Duran Duran was given an exclusive tour!
